, that can backfire. this is obama/biden politics going forward now. going outside of washington to try to change public opinion and remake how people think about issues. gun control, as i said, biggest effort ever to try to change the gun control laws. doesn't mean it's going to work, but the president and the vice president are going to try. >> senator feinstein said it well, it's an uphill road. will the administration lower its expectations? you know, maybe concentrate on the background checks and not so much the assault weapon ban? >> the background checks are enormously popular and clearly have a better chance of passage. what it seems based on what vice president biden emphasized yesterday and what some on capitol hill are saying, better to get the so-called low-hanging fruit. better to go for the measures that could build some popularity. and maybe some momentum. pass those and then maybe come back. the president feels passionately about this issue. any parent can look at his face when he talks about newtown and know for him it's personal, and it's important. and the best way to

to president obama, congressman ryan says he does not think republicans are in a political wilderness since they control the house of representatives and most state legislators. rick? >> rick: do other leaders in the republican party agree with congressman ryan? i know there has been a big meeting going on, discussing the future of the party. what is everybody else saying? >> reporter: certainly a number of republicans are finding their voice again and the party seems to be doing soul-searching. louisiana republican governor bobby jindal, another g.o.p. presidential candidate in 2016 said the g.o.p. needs to put forth a clearer economic message. >> we must not be the party that simply protects the well off so they can keep their toys, we have to be the party that shows all americans how they can thrive and whose ideas will help the middle class and folks join the middle class and we are a populist party and need to make it clear to every voter and every american. >> reporter: today congressman ryan said republicans need to, quote, convince the country to change course economically to avoid

't touch. this political negligence suggests that obama has chosen to ignore negative budget projections, credit downgrades, falling revenues and perpetual increases in mandatory spending. instead, the president is teeing up partisan legislative battles with republicans in hopes of -- but as a measurement of the president's seriousness, his second inaugural address can only be seen as a grand failure that missed yet another historic opportunity to call americans together in the name of shared sacrifice. and richard haass, there is another opportunity, which would be the state of the union which i'm sort of banking on. >> traditionally inaugurals are the poetry, and then the state of the union becomes the prose. and the president did not prepare for educate the american people about some of the tough decisions to come, particularly on medicare and medicaid. so the real question going forward for the state of the union is whether he essentially addresses that. and whether he -- because we've still got more than, i think, more than $2 trillion in serious cuts to be made to entitlements over

movement in american politics. their entire indictment of barack obama is, he's mean! that's pathetic. >> right. >> are you serious? >> yes, she is serious, ron. we just saw one of our fellow conservatives talking about the president's plan to outlaw fox news. actually all the president pointed out and i'm quoting was that if a republican member of congress is not punished by fox news or by rush limbaugh for working with a democrat on a bill of common interest, then you'll see more of them doing it. which i don't know, ron, sounds pretty obvious to me, but are you also losing sleep at night because you're afraid the president wants to take away your fox news and your guns? >> you know, i'm very happy to come on msnbc and say thank god for fox news. the fact of the matter is without fox news we'd still think that benghazi, that that attack, that terrorist attack happened because of a video. without katherine and special report and the hard news people. by the way, they have more hard news people than msnbc, cnn, and everybody else -- >> sorry, ron, ron, ron, i accept your analysis on b

more aggressively? we being the u.s. government? >> we had a political narrative, the obama administration did, of the george bush equivalent of mission accomplished. it was job well done. we wanted the narrative to say everything is okay in libya. it's been a wonderful success story. she did have time to go through the tv shows when it was a victory lap about the libya, the overthrow of gaddafi, she has better things to do on sunday mornings than explain this failure in leadership and failure in accountability and failure of our intelligence or what happened. we still don't have a clear picture. >> congresswoman thanks so much for coming in. >> thank you. >> coming up, perfume for babies? sounds slightly ridiculous, right? wrong. coming to a store near you. >> then are you ready for some football? clayton has the gadgets and gizmos to take your super bowl party to a whole new level. i wish he had the nachos. >> welt. >> you ready for some football. the countdown is on for the super bowl. lucky for you clayton has the gantle you need to make your party teched out. >> nertd -

that president obama is not looking to moderate and move to the middle but is instead looking for a political fight. >> i decided not to comment between the election and the inauguration because i wanted to see what kind of president we're looking at here? what kind of path and trajectory he was putting his administration on. all of the statements and all of the comments lead me to believe he is thinking more of a political conquest than political compromise. and that is my concern. jon: ryan also focused on the nation's fiscal crisis saying only significant spending cuts, not tax reform, will solve the deficit problem. that is something is he thinks the president is missing. >> i don't think that the president thinks we actually have a fiscal crisis. he has been reportedly saying to our leaders we don't have a spending problem, we have a health care problem. that leads me to conclude he thinks we ought to have more government-run health care and rationing. i don't think that is going to work. jon: let's get back to karl rove. karl, what about his thoughts on a president bent on conquest? >>

been identified. and the morning you see the obama administration interested in action rather than politics, you're going to have a different kind of tone. but we also should be looking at two things. what are the psychiatric problems and to what degree does the federal privacy law make it almost impossible to identify people who have psychological problems? i suspect we're going to find this tragic situation in alabama right this minute involves somebody with a deep psychological problem. and then, second, i think we have to look at, what is happening in big cities, where it is, in fact, largely pistols that are involved, and largely gangs that are involved? >> let me ask you about another big issue that we've been talking about a lot this week, the issue of immigration. there's been a big bipartisan push, you know, this week, including republicans, marco rubio, john mccain, talking about this comprehensive immigration reform. but, clearly, not all republicans are on board with this latest push. listen here to senator david vitter. >> i love and respect marco. i think he's just am

and not top down politically and t artificially from washington. if what obama was proposing was a great idea, this should be the most prosperous economy in the world. republicans heard jindal say we're going to do something new and turn that model on its head and grow the economy bottom up. that's how republicans get young people, women, immigrants, everybody. >> one of the things that mitt romney got into trouble with is that it really did sound like he was being degrading to african-americans, latinos and people who supported the president by saying the kinds of things that you just said in terms of being a victim and being taken care of. how does the republican party -- what is the message here in terms of we are inclusive and we will provide for your life so that it is a better life without sounding so condescending? >> i'll disagree. i don't think that's what i just said. i think that is in fact the president's approach to government that in a complex world, you know, he targets these folks. this is the story of julia cradle to crave, government is here to give you stuff and help y

wants to run the federal government. sometimes in politics, the best way to do that is to run against the federal government. that's the honest truth. >> john avlon, margaret hoover, thank you very much. >> thanks, victor. >>> president obama may be facing a high stakes supreme court battle because a federal appeals court unanimously ruled today that president obama's recess appointments to a federal agency are unconstitutional. the president named three people to the national labor relations board during congress' winter holiday break a year ago. they were former deputy labor secretary sharon block, attorney richard griffin, and attorney terrence flynn. now, today, a three-judge federal panel said those appointments are invalid because the senate was only in recess and technically still in session. let's bring in legal analyst jeffrey toobin. jeffrey, there are so many questions here. first, let's start with what is the next move? >> well, he will either ask the full appeals court to hear it, or go directly to the supreme court. you know, this is a very technical legal issue. but whe

on immigration reform for almost two years now. it was seen more as a political message ahead of an election rather than a genuine push for change here. the thing is, now the administration thinks they may be able to accomplish something. >> in 2011, president obama went to the border town in el paso to push for comprehensive immigration reform. >> out of many, one. we define ourselves as a nation of imgrants. >> reporter: that went no where now in a second term, the president is trying it again. heading to las vegas today to push for border security, a verification system for employers to ensure they hire documented workers, with punishment if they don't. and the most significant and controversial part of the plan, a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants, including registering with the government, undergoing background checks, paying taxes and a penalty, and learning english. a solution has alluded past presidents, including george w. bush. >> congress' failure to act is a disappointment. >> reporter: president obama said that some undocumented young immigrants would stop. but
